As s distant relative of Dale’s from California I only met Dorothy in later years. My eldest sister Barbara played with Dorothy’s sister when they were small children. I know that Dorothy is probably still laughing about the day I drove she and Donna to lunch in Amana and got us hopelessly lost. She was a lovely lady and I so enjoyed those short visits we had together. I am missing her. Joan Olsen and Rich Olsen
A lovely lady and neighborhood friend
